The screening is of six films from the Cinenova collection around race, identity, sexuality and gender. The programme focuses on different aspects of space, such as having a space in history; interior and exteriors; public and private. To accompany the screening there will be a publication that has been designed and created especially for the event, containing stills and scanned material of the films from the Cinenova paper archive.

Curated by Rhiannon Moxham and Becky Buckman, Occupying Space will take place at LUX in Waterlow Park and is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival (1-16 June 2017). See the full programme on www.antiuniversity.org.

Rhiannon Moxham and Becky Buckman joined Cinenova as part of the Artquest Widening Participation internship scheme. The six month scheme aims to place UAL’s recent Outreach graduates in paid roles to ensure equality of access to jobs in the visual arts.

This event is supported by Artquest.

Antiuniversity Now

Initiated in 2015, Antiuniversity Now is a collaborative experiment to challenge institutionalised education, access to learning and the mechanism of knowledge creation and distribution. Antiuniversity Now was set up to reignite the 1968 Antiuniversity of London with the intention to challenge academic and class hierarchy and the exclusivity of the £9K-a-year-degree by inviting people to organise and share free learning events in public spaces all over the country. It is free, open and inclusive.


Cinenova is a non-profit organisation dedicated to distributing feminist films and videos. Founded in 1991 following the merger of two feminist film and video distributors, Circles and Cinema of Women.

CA digital archive of selected works from Cinenova distribution is available for viewing at The Showroom. For details on how to view the digital archive follow this link here.
